Yes, Penpal, I agree. I went to a local FH meeting where a geneticist was giving a talk and he said they are doing a lot of work gathering information and samples. He said that they are already seeing the route early man took out of Africa, just by looking at similarities in genes. I think paternal DNA is easier to track and he also said that people with Romany roots have DNA similarities that came from India.

It is all quite fascinating really as he said they are finding that the extent of the invasion of the Vikings in this country is quite defined and backed up by the DNA of people living in Viking villages or having Viking derived surnames. He said move a few miles further and the viking DNA diminishes.

If people think it won't help their FH, he was able to tell us that all members of one particular family surname in this country are ALL related.
